For moments when …

For moments when temptation seems impossible to resist:

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it                                                                                                     1 Corinthians 10:13

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.                               James 1:13-15

The devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him and stand firm in the faith.                                                       1 Peter 5:8

For moments when my finances trouble me: 

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say,“The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”                                                                                                         Hebrews 13:5

Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.       Ecclesiastes 5:10

No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.                                                                         Matthew 6:24

For moments when I wonder if my heart is in the right place

And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”                                                                                                     Luke 10:25-28

For moments when I worry that I will not hear from God

 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God  may be thoroughly equipped for every good work                                  2 Timothy 3:16-17

For moments when I need assurance of salvation

For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life John 3:16

The Lord knows who are His                                                                                            2 Timothy 2:19

I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes in Him who sent me has eternal life                                                                                                 John 5:24

My salvation will last forever                                                                               Isaiah 51:6
